Have a connection with cancer in some way shape or form not only do you have up a connection with cancer you have a connection with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Could you were treated there as a seven year old back in the day. I lives that that last seven I support on all my. A childhood cancer and Barack have fallen I have it. The survival rate wasn't that high. You know is you know our orbits at case against bird beginning at. Data file which you besides that my lights were long children's hospital and prayers and had a connection that's great servers absent.

Back in Robertson and so much of the progress that's been made fighting cancer has made right here in the scope and so Eric. I Clark thank all the people don't make. Years never know. I'll need it in robberies ever acknowledge that people where they treat everybody and what the you know. A millionaire billionaire all you you don't have great they treat everyone the same people there are incredible. Can you believe the advancements that have been made you know not just the seventies because if you take the early 2000 in in knowing what that what the doctors knew then.

I'm not sad cases but you know basic Stiller dancing a law needed trying to find out what went wrong. And it. As the mayor of Boston your in a unique position to understand this better than most but. A common theme among many of our guess is nobody wants to have to go through any of this but if you do have to go through it. The city of Boston might be the best place on the planet to have to go through it. I talk to bears all the time in what they talked about it and a lot of ways. Obviously our college university with a TARP what hospital.

And yet we have differences aside and and you know to support an organization like this is to work on its mentally would do and how are today. By every day year packages offered support anyway speakers except in I've known it in the last in the last much past couple months here. I'd be free of poor people I don't personally. That have been diagnosed cancer and it was a shock. And it is shock and the first instinct is always very bad we think that something like that and then. In Taba normally treat people buy that helps them. He worked with a psychologically and advocate sort. And in it's it's a big deal I mean it's that they feel. You know who we thought well I certainly gave me obstacles on the outs and get all eight of how fortunate if you pick out the up or you are when that day comes we need you know.
